Burnley boss Sean Dyche proud seeing duo in England squad

Burnley boss Sean Dyche is delighted to see two of his players named in the latest England squad.

Burnley captain Tom Heaton and defender James Tarkowski have both been recalled to the senior England squad, while 19-year-old winger Dwight McNeil has been included in the U20 set-up for the first time.

"The number of internationals is a really pleasing side-effect of all the varying success we've had over the years," Dyche said.

"The sheer number of call-ups we get now, compared to when we came, is radically different and particularly with England it had been many a year since a player had been called up.

"It's very pleasing for the players, who deserve it, but also pleasing for the club in where it now stands."
